    Exclamation Help!! Visual c++ 2008

    Hi,

    I`m new to programing and I wanted to learn 'C', and so I am doing that now. My problem is that there are examples to do (in the book that I`m learning from) but I write it up right in Visual c++ 2008 express (and build it/compile it) but when I execute it it opens and immedietly closes, the program says "file.exe has close with code 0"

    can anyone help, It's the basic hello world program and it's kind of frustrating getting it to build and execute but imedietly close!

    Thanks

    P.S here is the code:

    // First c (1).cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.
    //This is my first c program

    #include <stdafx.h>
    #include <stdio.h>

    int main()
    {
    printf ("Howdy, neighbor! This is my first C program\n");
    return 0;
    }

    but I also tried something more advanced here:

    // Project (2).cpp : Calculate an addition and print the result.
    //Let's see what happens

    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include <stdio.h>
    //This function adds two integers and returns the result
    int integer_add( int x, int y )
    {
    int result;
    result = x + y;
    return result;
    }

    int main()
    {
    int sum;

    sum = integer_add( 5, 12);
    printf("The addition of 5 and 12 is %d.\n", sum);
    return 0;
    }

    and the same, compile but execute and exit

    Thanks again

    Put a getchar() before return in the main function

    int main()
    {
    printf ("Howdy, neighbor! This is my first C program\n");
    return 0;
    }
    You run you program, a dos-box appears, prints your text and the dos-box closes. There is nothing wrong with your app, but the program ends as soon as its starts.

    Add this lines so your app won't disappear.
    int main()
    {
    printf ("Howdy, neighbor! This is my first C program\n");
    system ("pause");
    return 0;
    }
